Cynwal, Wiliam.  In defence of woman. London: The Golden Cockerel Press, 1960. Narrow 8vo (23.6 cm, 9.3"). 28 pp.; col. illus.
$300.00

Golden Cockerel edition: a 16th-century Welsh poem translated into English and introduced by Gwyn Williams, and => illustrated with nine full-page engravings and a decorated title-page by John Petts. The Defence was written in earnest response to the more satiric Against Women, which Golden Cockerel had published in English in 1953, also with illustrations by Petts; the artist's richly colored illustrations for this tribute to female virtue are as => strikingly sensuous as they were for the testimony to female vice — and only slightly more clothed. This is numbered copy 179 of 500 printed.

Cock-a-hoop 210. Publisher's blue cloth, front cover with gilt-stamped vignette, in the original glassine dust wrapper; wrapper with light wear to extremities. => A clean, fresh copy.  (37186)   Please RESHELVE This.
